Phil Spencer Confirms That Some Games on Xbox Series S Load Faster than Xbox Series X

The head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, says that some games on Xbox Series S load faster than Xbox Series X, the flagship next-gen console of Microsoft.

There are less than a few weeks to go for the launch of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, after Microsoft having revealed practically everything about its new consoles (focusing in particular on the flagship), it would seem willing to raise the level of attention of players and insiders even on the cheapest platform.

Mistaken by those who do not fully consider it a next-generation console, Xbox Series S instead has hardware on its side capable of optimally exploiting the games designed for Microsoft’s new main platform. And, in some ways, it exploits them even better.

To confirm it is Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox division and one of the most popular faces of the entire video game industry. During an interview with Kotaku, Spencer stated that Xbox Series S is able to load some games faster than Series X because it works with resources that have a lower resolution than Xbox Series X.

This feature, combined with the speed offered by the pre-installed SSD, allows the economic console to be able to guarantee the performance of the highest level. Unfortunately, Spencer did not communicate which games will load in less time on Xbox Series S but admitted that he was very surprised in terms of overall performance, thus reassuring all those who, hesitating to buy, were afraid of purchasing a platform slightly less powerful than Xbox Series X.

It is also worth noting that the console has some features (such as the Quick Resume) introduced by Microsoft with the new next-gen platforms and impossible to obtain with those of the current generation.

Waiting for any new information regarding the two consoles, we remind you that Xbox Series S and Series X will arrive on the market on November 10, at a price of $299 and $499 respectively.
